1-12-2021 - City of Ladue is a 2021 TRIM Grant Recipient!! 

In August of 2020, the City of Ladue was awarded a Tree Resource Improvement and Maintenance (TRIM) Grant from the Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC). This grant is a cost sharing initiative administered by MDC to assist municipalities with the management, maintenance and improvement of trees on public land and rights-of-way. Starting this January, Gamma Tree Experts will remove 9 trees in poor or dead condition from City rights-of-way and remove 48 additional stumps. They will also prune 114 low/moderate risk trees on City property. We are excited about the award of this grant to assist the City in maintaining a healthy tree population on our City property. Gamma Tree Experts will be doing this tree maintenance starting in January and will complete all work by April 1, 2021. A big thank you to the Missouri Department of Conservation, City Arborist Sean Seed, the Beautification, Open Space and Tree Advisory Committee and all supporting staff that were a part of this effort!
